MAISON&OBJET is a world major trade show of interior and design held in Paris, FRANCE.
HIBIYA KADAN FLORAL CO., LTD. attended this exhibition in January 2015 (date: 23rd to 27th January 2015), continuously from year 2013.
With special invitation from SAFI, the host of MAISON&OBJET, to this exhibition regarding
display/demonstration of “Flower and Lifestyle”, our display was a design of wall using flowers and plants as a
creation inspired from “MAKE”, which was the main theme of MAISON&OBJET Paris January 2015.
The “Wall” was expressed by the flowers exported from Japan and supplied in Europe
(Holland) with the concept of “ZEN” as a static and “RAN” as a dynamic.
Also an interior of flower arrangement photograph designed by HIBIYA KADAN flower
coordinators named “Mur d’une fleur” was displayed at the show.
During the period, lot of visitors stopped in front of our display, with their comments as
“Bravo!” and “Fantastic!” The booth was like a photo spot, finished with great success.
Regarding the concept of “ZEN”, I stood face to face with the personal concept that all life is single. I made the design with the image of various ways that water moving silently. By the theme, using succulent plants mainly, volume and texture of the water inside is also placed by gradation to express the diversity and coexistence. Design is symmetry to make it easier to recognize from far distance since the display was in the center of the booth.
Japanese brilliant flowers blooming profusely and overlapping each other. The dexterous seasonal change of the flowers makes our life vary and tell us a joy that the seasons exist. Brilliant until the end, as you may feel the after effect. As previous show, it attracted many visitors’ interest because of the blight multicolor used in the design. Many florists from France, Italy had visited our booth with interest of how the design is made and about Japanese flowers.
VIP room is only for the top buyers those who are invited. I adopted the theme color of the VIP room, which was used as a color of the curtain of the venue, into part of my image. With conscious of the HIBIYA KADAN design theme “WALL”, I tried to express the wall with texture of materials and curved line made by the leaf. I received many words of praise and complimented by the guests of the VIP room.
